Bold, beautiful, and brimming with personality, the elegantly-striped Twospotted Wrasse makes the perfect addition to showcase in your display reef aquarium. Juveniles and sub adults are easily identifiable by a pair of ocelli, or "false eyes", on the dorsal fin which disappear as the Twospotted Wrasse matures.

The ideal setup for the Twospotted Wrasse will be a well-established saltwater aquarium of at least 50 gallons in size with a tight-fitting lid. Aquascape liberally with live rock, making sure to include a large area of open substrate to best replicate the seaward reefs from which the Twospotted Wrasse originates. In the wild, the Twospotted Wrasse also prefers to inhabit reef crests and slopes so be sure to maintain open spaces for swimming. A sandy substrate layer 2-3 inches in depth provides refuge for the Twospotted Wrasse as it burrows into the sand for the evening or when frightened. House the Twospotted Wrasse with other peaceful wrasses, including members of its own species.

The natural diet of the Twospotted Wrasse consists of benthic invertebrates and as such, large, hungry Twospotted Wrasse will eat fireworms and pyramidellid snails, protecting corals and clams from these undesirable invertebrates. The Twospotted Wrasse may also eat parasites off of tank mates. Though this hearty appetite for invertebrates seems beneficial, keep in mind that the Twospotted Wrasse cannot differentiate between "undesirable" and "desirable" invertebrates. If the opportunity presents itself, the Twospotted Wrasse will most likely make a meal of "desirable" ornamental invertebrates including fan worms, shrimp, and other crustaceans in the home aquarium. However, the Twospotted Wrasse typically will not harm sessile invertebrates including soft or stony corals.

In the home aquarium, the diet of the Twospotted Wrasse should include vitamin-enriched frozen mysis shrimp and vitamin-enriched frozen brine shrimp. The Twospotted Wrasse is an active forager that requires frequent small feedings throughout the day.
